Last year I had tons of zuchinni and tomatoes (go figure) in my garden and found a recipe on for a zuchinni tomatoe salad. It is very similar to this one. Just slice the zuchinni raw like you would the cucumber (but you don't need to peel it) it was really delicious. I took it to a work potluck and they loved it. Just trying to help you use up your zuchinni too! lol

This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
